Redknapp takes on his former club today in a ding-dong lunchtime derby at Loftus Road.
He said: âIt had nothing to do with my record â yes, it was political.
âIâve got my own feelings about what happened to me but itâs difficult for me to say.â
Redknapp had a year left on his contract and no one â not even âArry â expected the off-season to start with chairman Daniel Levy giving him the bullet.
The Rangers chief said: âI went to see him about signing a new contract and that was it â it ended with me leaving.â
Redknapp insists he holds no grudges against Levy or anybody at Spurs.
He added: âWhat am I supposed to say? I hope West Ham donât do any good, I hope Southampton are c**p, I hope Bournemouth keep losing.
âI swear on my wifeâs life I do not worry about those things. They do not affect me any more. Iâm not interested."
